Synopsis from Goodreads:


She may have left prostitution, but can Mia face the demons of her past? Now working for a different kind of Agency, with a new set of rules and a new life. There is so much to learn in so little time. The world of espionage is not too far from the secret life of prostitution that she’s trying to leave behind. Can she withstand the mental and physical training that’s involved in becoming a secret agent?

Agent Nick Davis is Mia’s mentor. He’s also all that she desires. He is everything she ever wanted in a man and he is the one person who understands and accepts her. She may have known him before but the more she learns about him now, the more she loves. Their love may grow stronger by the day but is it strong enough to survive her return to Tench?

Her quest to find the truth about her friend may continue to lead her further into the dark life of crime boss Joe Tench. While at the same time, his obsession for her is developing into something sinister. Can she discover what evil he is orchestrating in time before he discovers the truth about her?

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This novel is very well and naturally written. Hamilton is a very visual author who shows you each and every aspect of this novel, rather than simply telling you about it. She creates a story that is exhilarating and exciting without being over the top. Even with the ending, that has me simultaneously dumbfounded and dying for the sequel, Hamilton kept me on my toes without ever throwing anything at you that didn’t make sense. Everything within the storyline is well laid out to reach a specific end, even if we figure out what that is right alongside the brilliant characters.

Hamilton has developed an amazing Alpha male lead for this novel that he contrasts with a female counterpart that is perfect for him. I love how she shows his ‘alphaness’ without making her seem weak or subservient. They are both very well developed as individuals. It’s quite unique to see them grow together as a couple and separately via the roles that they’ve been thrust into. Not only are the main characters well developed and approachable, but the supporting cast is brilliant as well. Some of them are completely off the hook and are individuals that you’d love to get to know.

Overall? I’m dying to go to Australia now. I enjoyed the first novel of this series, I loved this one, and I definitely can’t wait for the third. I’d fully recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a romantic suspense.
